DTN Closing Livestock Comment 04/12 15:44
   External Pressures Sent the Livestock Complex Tumbling Lower

   It was a taxing day for the livestock complex as external pressure sent the
contracts falling lower.

   The livestock complex struggled throughout all of Friday's trade which led
to all three markets closing lower. The market's main focus points seemed to be
on inflation and the continued spread of HPAI in dairy cattle. Hog prices
closed lower on the Daily Direct Afternoon Hog Report, down $0.45 with a
weighted average price of $86.60 on 1,575 head. May corn is up 6 3/4 cents per
bushel and May soybean meal is up $8.80. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is
down 475.84 points.
